Parenting in the 21st Century can be confusing! As parents try their best to play the crucial role of shaping our next generation – the pillar of hope of our nation – they are bombarded with horror stories of teen suicides, school violence, cyber bullying, sexual abuse, and underage pregnancies and ask questions like,
“How can I keep these problems from affecting my family?”
“Where can I go for help?”
“What if my children won’t listen?”
Good Enough Parenting™ is the answer! Based on extensive clinical experience, the newest research, and in collaboration with the UK’s University of Stirling, Good Enough Parenting™ (GEP) is an evidence-informed parenting programme that has already transformed the lives of thousands of families around the world.
